Orosmoln combines elements of post-rock, prog-rock and even a bit of metal on Heliocentric which adds up to a very satisfying and interesting listen. Heliocentric is a concept album of sorts which chronicles a journey to the centre of the earth and the music itself does have an adventurous and expansive quality to it. “Hollow Earth” kicks things off in a mellow fashion with the sounds of blowing wind and fuzzy-sounding mission control voice overs which immediately sets the mood for the adventure that is to follow. A simple keyboard melody and military-style drumbeat build the song to a crescendo of distorted guitar rhythms and frantic drumming with accents of flanger on the guitars and soft keyboard pieces enlarging the soundscape of the song further.
